Who the hell is Robert Carson?


So while trying to find me some good Mets prospects (as you may already know from my username and posts I am in fact a Mets fan), I found out about Robert Carson a couple of months ago. Now 20 years old, Carson has been noticeably dominating the Single-A Sally league with the Sand Gnats. Carson, according to his MILB profile, is not small, 6'3", 220 LBS. It appears that he was selected by the Mets in the 2007 draft out of High school. He's a lefty pitcher, which I forgot to mention.

 

Last year in the GCL, Carson made 5 starts pitching 23 innings. He struck out 25, walked 6, and allowed just 11 hits, earning him a 1.57 ERA. Moved up to the Appy league, Carson showed some struggle, pitching 30.2 innings over 6 starts, he struck out 21 and walked a rather alarming 18. He allowed 29 hits, and lucky for him his ERA was just 1.76 in the league. Throughout his 53.2 innings, he allowed 1 HR.

 

This year, Carson reminds me a lot of Joe Saunders, although a little more dominant in the minors and younger than Saunders ever was. He's made 15 starts and pitched in 83.1 innings, allowing 80 hits, striking out 54 and walking 27. His ERA is 2.27. Once again, he only has allowed 1 HR.

 

In his 146 inning career, he's allowed 3 HR.

 

So, in terms of scouting, does anyone know ANYTHING about this guy? Is he a lot like Saunders? He's become a personal favorite of mine.
